Cucumber Gin and TonicPosted: July 14, 2015
This is a very refreshing cocktail. The cucumber slices and celery bitters add vegetal flavors that really enhance the classic Gin and Tonic. I found celery bitters at a local liquor store, but you can buy them online too.
Cucumber Gin and Tonic
1 1/2 ounces gin (I like navy-strength gin)
4 cucumber slices (plus another for garnish)
2 – 3 dashes celery bitters (optional)
4 ounces tonic water
lime wedge (plus another for garnish)
Combine the gin, cucumber slices, and celery bitters. Add ice and then top with the tonic water. Squeeze a wedge of lime in the drink. Garnish with a cucumber slice and a lime wedge.
